SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday March 21 2017 13 News Restoring hearing for ashion • By Tom Doudney SPORTS islanders rewarding work SEEING THE smiles on the faces of Cook Islanders who had just had their hearing restored will be a memory that stays with Rolleston audiologist Brenna Sincock. Ms Sincock recently spent Gardening five days working at Rarotonga BUSINESSES Hospital, testing people and fitting them with hearing aids. She had been invited to volunteer by her former employer, Scott Wright, who set up the audiology programme about 15 years ago. “It was really rewarding,” Ms Sincock said. Motoring “They were so grateful for people donating hearing aids and so happy to be able to hear again.” One 22-year-old man had appeared “stand off-ish” and didn’t smile at all when he showed up for treatment. At first Ms Sincock thought that maybe it was a difference in culture or because he wasn’t very fluent in English. Tasty Bites “Then I tested him, found out he had this really severe loss and I had a really good grunty hearing aid that I could fit to him, so I programmed it all up and I turned it on,” she said. SPORTS BUSINESSES HELPING OUT: Rolleston audiologist Brenna Sincock with John, 4, one of many Cook Islanders she treated for hearing issues over her five days at Rarotonga Hospital. ​ “From then on a smile just came over his face and stayed on his face for the entire appointment. He just started talking to me and he was a completely different person from then on.” While her airfares and accommodation were covered, she had to shut her Rolleston practice while she was away. “I just thought it would be a great opportunity to see a different side of audiology,” Ms Sincock said. “In terms of the types of hearing loss I was seeing over there they have definitely a lot more severe cases of hearing loss, so I was dealing with a lot more people with severe to profound types of loss whereas in New Zealand those sorts of people would probably have been referred on for cochlear implants.” Cook Islanders don’t have access to audiology services apart from a visiting clinician every six to 12 months.
